Since both of my classes are reaching the end of their current projects, I need to begin prepping NOW for the next ones. I already have the resources, but I need to tweak, reread, possibly redraw, copy, everything so I know what to teach.
I also have to plan and order supplies for next semester’s sculpture class, since I’ll be teaching lessons that are different than the other sculpture teacher’s lesson plans (basically, she found it too stressful for herself to share the projects, materials, and the classroom with me…so I decided to just do my own projects, as long as I’m hitting the similar standards and outcomes as her projects). Luckily it’s only one class I need to order for, but I do have to do some shopping in stores in order to get cheaper prices (hey coupons!).
PLUS it’s the end of another 6-week grading period, so I have stacks of notebooks that I need to grade.
AND I’m worrying about my students who have Fs because they haven’t turned in work, or they’re really behind, or they’ve been absent several times and haven’t made an effort to catch up…
I know everything will fall into place and work itself out, but I have to do stuff in order to make that happen.
Once again, another weekend spent lesson planning. I hope I don’t have to do this so often for my 3rd year of teaching…
